It took being gifted a smart thermostat for me to make the change. I’m not legitimately sure why it took me nearly a decade to get onboard the smart thermostat train. It’s not that I was actively resisting having this sort of Heating plus A/C technology inside our home. That’s not it at all. For sure, I’m very appreciative of all the technology that I have in our life. From the devices that I use everyday at beach house to all the technology that makes our task easier inside the zone controlled Heating plus A/C of the office. So it wasn’t that I was trying to limit the amount of technology in our life. That wasn’t it at all. I suppose perhaps it was more the fact that I tend to be a creature of habit. And when it comes to the Heating plus A/C, that’s certain ly true. I sort of have consistently had a structure plus a process when it came to the heating plus cooling of our home. When I first became a homeowner, I also was lucky to get the latest in residential Heating plus A/C equipment. But that was just prior to the advent of the smart thermostat. So when I got the digital thermostat with the current Heating plus A/C unit, I went about learning all about it. And so, I’ve consistently simply programmed the digital thermostat for the odd seasons. That all changed when our in laws gave us a smart thermostat. Once it was installed, I did what was proposed plus just basically left it alone. I can’t guess how much that Heating plus A/C technology just saved us in Heating plus A/C cooling over the course of a summer. I’m onboard the smart thermostat train now.
